Bid upgrade successful; cannot pick seat in new class

Hi,

Lufthansa has accepted my bid upgrade from Premium Economy (G) to Business class on LH420 on July 3. My booking class is now marked as Business Basic (Z).

I signed into the Lufthansa website to pick my seat but every seat in the Business class cabin in marked as occupied. What am I missing here?

All the 8 seats still unassigned are blocked for various reasons. Once checkin opens you can select a seat:

Thanks! Some of the reasons for the unassigned seats in row 1 look like it could be a rather uncomfortable journey but it is what it is.

Two cots and two infants. I hope they are well behaved!

Extra category for deportee sounds interesting.
@oliver2002 what does "restricted" and how does it differ from "blocked"? What is "UMNR"?

Those are the designated seats for parents with infants, not always the case on each flight. Restricted means it’s available to some (elites etc). Blocked could be seats inop or sold as extra seat etc.
